Malling Minerva, Raspberry

Bred by Vicky Knight at EMR, this high yielding reliable variety crops one week ahead of Glen Ample. Malling Minerva is spine-free with an easily managed compact plant habit and produces erect new canes in the centre of the row. The berries are well presented to the pickers on medium length, ascending laterals, and have an even and attractive conical shape. The fruit is firm with a good colour, flavour and shelf life with medium to large berries. Disease resistance is excellent but the variety is susceptible to Raspberry Root Rot. Yields in excess of 3.7kg per stool were recorded in trials at JHI in 2010.

Standard Cane: £976 per thousand

Ordering Information
How To Grow – Plant from autumn through to late spring in a sunny position with free draining soil. Floricane raspberries (summer fruiting) will require a sturdy support system made of posts and horizontal wires, primocane raspberries (autumn fruiting) do not require supports. Plant in rows spaced 60cm (24”) apart and prune to 15cm (6”) above ground level immediately after planting to encourage more growth. At the time of despatch, canes will be dormant and often look dead, but this is completely normal. Prepare holes in the soil wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Please plant as soon as possible upon arrival and water well, apply a mulch to protect the roots from cold temperatures and the canes will then begin to establish. If conditions prevent immediate planting, heel the plants in.
